Blog Love!!

Thanks to one of my favorite blog girls Donna at Lip Gloss and Flip Flops for gifting me with my first blog award, the Liebster!! I am so excited!! Hopefully I will do Donna proud and continue to be a good little blogger!!

Here we go...this is my first 'blog award', so hopefully I do it right!....

Liebster means "favorite" or "dearest" in German. This award, which originated in Germany, recognizes up and coming bloggers! In accepting this award, I agree to:

*Thank the person who gave me the award and link back to their blog

*Copy and paste the award to my blog

*Reveal the 5 blogs I have chosen to award and let them know by commenting on their blogs

*Pay it forward to 5 blogs

I started blogging...over a year ago just as a way to connect to other ladies out there with similar interests....Fast forward, I failed! I became more of a blog stalker than blogger myself. Recently, here I am back again and hoping to really make this habit stick and using it as an outlet to what is going in IRL. Along this journey, I have encountered some FABULOUS people! They have made this experience ridiculously rewarding and something that I truly look forward too. Now...if only I could get a handle on the whole Twitter thing....baby steps, Cara.....

The goal of this award is to highlight other new bloggers....honestly most all of the blogs that I follow are not 'new' (if you are new and are seeing this...let me know! i'd love to find you!...) and actually have many followers. These girls have been so FAB, and supportive, I just had to highlight them!

1. Tina @ Sequins, Plaids & Paws
2. Ashley @ Adventures of a Future Teacher
3. Nikki @ Raindrops on Wednesday
4. Celia @ ....just trying to find my way
5. Jules @ Chic & Pink

  2. Congrats on your first award and thanks so much for passing it along to me!

    I'm so glad to see you back to blogging :)

    You definitely have to go to the Christiana Mall when you get a chance. They have done a lot with the place and the new Nordstrom is really nice. I just love it because I don't have to pay tax. The exit was bad getting off for us over the summer, but I think it's because a lot of people take that one to head to the beach. It will start getting more crowded with the holidays, but it should calm down after.

  3. How cool! Thank you!! This was a nice surprise to log in to today :)

    Crummy to hear about your mama having a bad day, they'll come and go. Just keep your chin up. This too shall pass. But yes, I understand how hard it is to see her like that. *Positive thoughts coming your way!*
